Asarina

Scrophulariaceae
Perennials

Climbing, sprawling, or trailing tender perennials with twining stems and triangular to ovate leaves. Tubular flowers, borne singly in leaf axils, flare at the mouth like snapdragon (Antirrhinum, a close relative). Often grown as an annual; plants from early sowings will bloom in late spring and through the summer. Grow on a trellis, in window boxes or hanging baskets, or as groundcover. Need good drainage.
